THE Y FOR
We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.
Physical Education outreach Program
The Mission Valley and Toby Wells YMCAs are proud to provide complimentary physical education classes during the school year to more than 2,400 students from four elementary schools in our community. We transport each student, ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade, to and from our YMCAs and the schools to receive free swim lessons and participate in sports, gymnastics, and fitness classes taught by certified instructors. These classes provide access to high-quality physical education and help kids develop social skills, self-confidence, and awareness of community resources.
Mission Valley YMCA serves two schools:
- Linda Vista Elementary
- Kit Carson Elementary
At least 80
percent of the students qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Toby Wells YMCA serves two schools:
- Hancock Elementary
- Angier Elementary
More than 80 percent of the students are from military families.
Upon completion of the year-long program, each participating student receives a complimentary Youth Membership to our YMCAs, allowing them to participate fully in our other program offerings while continuing the health and fitness activities they started through the Outreach Program.
Only With Your Help
These programs are completely funded through donations from our Annual Support Campaign.
Your generous donations have allowed us to provide more than $1.4 million to over 12,300 youth and families in the form of camp scholarships, membership aid, and
Monarch School Outreach
The Downtown YMCA has partnered with the Monarch School to offer supplementary PE classes after the students' school day. Students from all grades at Monarch, an accredited educational institution for homeless and at-risk children, participate in flag football, basketball, and fitness programs at the Downtown YMCA.
This program allows these students, learning in a non-traditional setting, to pursue the same recreational opportunities afforded students at traditional schools.
